I've NEVER been able to stomach too many veggies, but I started the green smoothies with spinach and fruit, and I'm now hooked. I've actually developed a taste for veggies. I can actually eat green/yellow/red peppers, and crave more! How exciting. I still hate cooked broccoli, but I buy the frozen broccoli pieces, and use instead of ice cubes. I actually love so many veggies (raw) now, just from trying a green smoothie. My energy level is through the roof. I used to take quite a few pain pills, but since starting the green smoothies, I occasionally take one. The best part about it, my entire family now loves them too. Win, Win Win for me! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

So I will start out saying this thing I call my life has been a wild journey of many unexpected things.So this has only been a piece of the puzzle leading to what I believe to be a Grand Climax.With chronic illness both physically and mentally my smoothies are becoming vital to maintaining some control over pain and mood stability.While I believe it is a multiple of things that I have incorporated over this last year,this is a major part!I have never or as long as I can remember been uh-um regular.Having had several members of the family die from colon cancer I'm sure even at 37 now that I was dieing very surely.Now from smoothie strictly I am more than regular (I do add organic ground flax,filling too!) Then theres the inflammation in my body which is greatly decreased ,I can now engage in slow walks and swimming .While it is still easy to overdue things I recover much faster and am not in bed (no kidding 20 hrs a day average)I have been able to go off all but one type of medication!Oh did I say I was on 10 different meds.Now I have ups n downs still and yes pain but I always remind myself daily actually of where I have came from and I get now the whole body n mind need to be nurtured! emoticon

I have started a little over a week ago and on the days I drink the green smoothie, I have more energy, less aches and pains, more control to eat good healthy foods all day. It is very satisfying.

Awesome Patti.

When I started eating better and as well drinking healthier with smoothies, I broke out. I know it was the detox period and continue to see healthy changes.
I know I am getting what my body needs that I may not take time during the day to give it. It is my safety net.
My nails have gotten the best they have ever been in my life, long and hard, but as well as flexible enough to with stand my daily activity.

Glad to see you here!!

I've noticed 2 things:

1) My sugar cravings have really decreased and I actually crave GS's.
2) My energy level is up when I have one. If I wait until later in the day to have one I can really tell.

Once school is out for the summer, I'm going to up my GS's to 2/day.

Love them!

I noticed my skin is clearing up, but I didn't acknowledge it until my husband mentioned to me that he noticed :) That made me feel great. I did lose a few pounds also. I gained a few over the holidays and been struggling to lose them. Now it seems I found the solution :)

If I drink a green monster or a juicer juice after a workout, it almost re-energizes my body back to where it was before the workout. If I drink a greenie for breakfast it makes me feel good throughout the morning almost like I've had a fulfilling breakfast.

I started drinking two green smoothies per day starting in mid-March. Since then my cravings for junk food have disappeared and I've lost 23 pounds. (I also reduced my soda consumption from 3 - 4 cans per day to 3 - 4 cans per week. I'm working on getting that down to no more than 1 a week. Baby steps!) My hair also seems a lot fuller and healthier.

Last Friday I fell face-first on the sidewalk (I'm recovering from a dislocated knee and my knee buckled unexpectedly) and I was unrecognizable with of all the swelling and redness. Today, only three days later, the swelling and redness is about 90% gone, I never got the bruising the doctors told me to expect, and the abrasions are nearly healed. I think this speedy healing is due to my green smoothies. I am, after all, 51 years old so I think a slower recovery would be more likely at my age. (My body is still mighty sore, though!)

It has only been a few weeks, but I seem to be more alert, sleep better and need less of it. I also stay full longer. AND, my fingers have lost that puffiness that I used to get after exercising!

All your posts are so encouraging. I know what you say is true because at one time in my life all I drank were green/fruit juices and ate live food almost exclusively. Never felt better in my life.

Well I've gone from 2 cups a day of coffee and an occasional soda, to no soda and half a cup of coffee about 3-4 mornings a week. So I'm getting there. I have to slowly cut back on things because as soon as I say 'quitting' it makes my cravings skyrocket. If it worked for cigarettes I'm sure it will work for coffee :)

Green smoothies have had a noticeable impact on my unhealthy cravings for salty junk food. All food tastes different to me now that I include green smoothies. Bad foods don't taste good to me now. Nothing before green smoothies has done this for my body before.

Dani, I am the same way. Even in high school if the choice was make up vs sleep, sleep won.
But congrats on feeling so good.

And Karan, hope you are having a better day today.

I wrote a blog about it, but I have had 2 molars giving me trouble. A cold thing. I have been drinking cold things on one side of my mouth for a few months now. Everytime I went to make an appt at the surgeon (already saw the dentist twice), they were closed. I believe it was fortuitous. Because here comes the green smoothie and food choice change.

I had an incredibly cold smoothie this morning. Coconut water was freezing, I used frozen fruits left over from last weeks shopping.... and all of a sudden realized. I was drinking on both sides of my mouth and nothing! No pain, no cold sensation, nothing! I am going to credit the green smoothie and raw salads.

I think this is a result of the smoothies because I know from experience not to give myself much credit in this department. Green smoothies are have made getting out of bed easier. For my entire life, I have been a person that does not get up any earlier than I absolutely have to. Throughout all of my years of school and then work, I would wake up with exactly enough time to brush my teeth, make myself look presentable and rush out the door. (This also made me late a lot!)
Now I get up with plenty of time to make my smoothie and enjoy it. Then I make myself look nice, not just presentable, for work. And more often than not, I'm EARLY for work. I realized today that it's been almost two months now since I decided to make a smoothie EVERY morning. A behavior change like this wouldn't have surprised me after a couple weeks, but two months? I'm sold. I'm finally starting to feel like I've made a lifestyle change, and I'm proud of that.

It has taken almost 90 days for this, but this is incredible! More strength! Better muscle response. No more seizures when I need to do something that isn't a planned movement and requires a lot of lifting. What a miracle greens are!

Thats one thing I also experienced. No cravings, no ungodly hunger.

Good for you!

I rarely have sugar cravings anymore. I love not having the urge to tear my kitchen apart looking for some form of chocolate!

I have just been drinking Green Smoothies for about 2 weeks everyday and I haven't had any meat or dairy.

The things I have noticed so far are.

1) I have become calmer and thinking clearer.
2) My skin is not a yellowish color anymore.
3) I have more energy and want to do more.
4) I crave more water & fresh fruits.

NOTE: I never liked to eat fruit before.


G'day, Spark mates!

Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Lamentations 3:22-24 Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, "The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait on Him."

I have dropped at least 23 lbs since the week before Thanksgiving when I started my road to raw and green smoothies. I was hopeful that this would happen and it is happening: my skin is tigtening with my weight loss! My skin is not baggy like it was before when I dropped weight. How fantastic is that?!

I had heard of a man that lost 165 lbs drinking green and didn't have to have any skin removed because it tightened up while he was losing the weight.

This is incredible! Wahoo!

Wow, Charlie that is incredible. I guess it's true that drinking green smoothies is a fountain of youth. So happy that you shared this with us. I'll be thinking about your posting when I'm drinking my delicious drink today.

It is amazing, I am noticing less wrinkles and my skin is not as yellow as it was. This is just from drinking one Green Smoothie a day since Dec. 26, 2011. Just think what will happen when I start drinking one 3 or 4 times a day.

I have also been doing Facial Exercises for about 2 months now and using Roc (retionol correxion deep winkle filler cream). I'm sure it is all helping.

My skin seems better actually already. My indigestion is gone. My breath is sweeter so says my husband. For him he loves the taste and isn't wanting his normal night time coffee.

We drink green smoothies because they are packed to the brim with macro and micro nutrients. We also drink them because they taste yummy!

Share here what you have seen as a benefit since starting up a green smoothie program. It makes everyones day brighter to see someone succeed and improve their health.
